Hello, I am 12 wks 3 days along. I went for my regular prenatal check up just the other day, and they were not able to find to find a heart beat on the heart doppler thing they stuck on my tummy but she said it was common cause I am still early. So I went into the ultrasound room and they did got the heart beat with that. However my concern is that at my 9 week check up they got a heart beat of 175 bpm and this time they only got it at 169 bpm. Is that normal for it to be different? The doc didn't say anything about it. But I am just wondering? any information would be apprecaited thanks.
It's completely normal for the baby's hb to change throughout your pregnancy. Just like an adult's hb is not the same every time. the first hb of my baby was 179 and the last one was 150. but thats perfectly normal. dont worry about it!!!

it will never be the exact same figure all the time but as long as it is within a normal range don't fret. also the doc could not hear my babys heart beat at 15 weeks i waited till i was 17 weeks and then the midwife got it.
